Today’s recipe comes from the cookbook “1,000 Gluten-free Recipes” by Carol Fenster (ISBN: 978-0-470-06780-2, $35/hardcover).

Mediterranean Tomato Soup with Rice
2 cans (14.5 ounces each) gluten-free, low-sodium chicken broth, such as Swanson’s Natural Goodness
1 can (15 ounces) petite diced tomatoes, including juices
1/4 cup diced fresh onion
1 1/2 tablespoons of finely chopped fresh oregano, basil, marjoram, and rosemary, plus extra for garnish
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/4 cup instant brown rice
Combine all the ingredients in a 2-quart heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce the heat to low, and simmer, covered, 20 minutes. Serve hot, garnished with a sprinkle of fresh herbs.
